I Am Starting a New Model

The

The first model described in this blog is the SBD Dauntless dive bomber:A-24 Banshee (Dauntless)I started it in May 2015.  Conceptually, I split this process into four stages:

  1. Preparations of the reference materials (preparing the reference drawings, collecting and organizing the photo archives): from May 2015 to August 2015;
  2. Modeling (forming the basic shape of the airplane);
  3. Applying materials and textures  (“painting” of the computer model: mapping the texture coordinates, preparing the texture images, setting up the scene lighting etc.);
  4. Detailing (creating and “painting” all of the remaining details: landing gear, cockpit interior, R-1820 engine, and many other things) [this is the the current stage];

I am going to create a precise model, thus the whole process will take me more than 24 months. The first milestone will be a model intended for detailed scale plans and color profiles, which I have deliver to local modelers’ magazine on January 2018. (It will contain no cockpit interior and simplified engine, not intended for the close-ups). Later in 2018 I will work on these more detailed areas.

  1. Looking forward to following your new project.
    I am working my way through the P-40 project (I just started Vol. 3) and have learned enough to try a F-86.
    Thanks for the effort.
